Things are a little batty around here lately because I’m all kinds of excited. This afternoon my family (minus my brother and new sister-in-law) is supposed to be pulling into town around the time I get off work. HIP HIP HOORAY! The 8-9 hours of work that I have to put in today will be a blur of anticipation and jitters and checking my text messages obsessively until I see the one that says, “WE’RE HERE!” And then I will completely flip out and run around in circles for ten minutes.
Not that I’m looking forward to it or anything.
Most of the gifts are bought and wrapped, cookies and other goodies have been made, the house is clean (thanks to a sweet friend), the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, etc. I think we’re about ready to get things under way.
If you don’t see much of me in the next week, you know why.
